Bio

I believe that good medicine starts with a compassion for people and a mind to serve those in need… I began my journey into medicine as an electrical engineer. Intrigued by radiofrequency transmission systems and cartilage regeneration, I completed graduate study focusing on nanoparticles and mechanokinetic device design. I ventured into medicine with a mind geared towards research in pediatric outcomes and improving the anesthesia delivery and monitoring systems designed for smaller patients. My interests in quality improvement associated with regional anesthesiology for pediatric patients, led me to serve as the Principal Investigator for the national Pediatric regional anesthesia network (PRAN) at Texas Children’s Hospital, with a focus on improving pediatric regional anesthesia drug delivery and quality outcomes. As a pediatric regional anesthesiologist and pain management specialist it is my aim to advance the practice of regional anesthesia and pain medicine in infants and children through safe and efficacious drug delivery. The incorporation of new peripheral nerve blocks brings both excitement and responsibility among anesthesiologists. My expertise in regional anesthesiology has permit me to transcend the perioperative environment and form a collaborative network that enhances pain delivery streams for a multitude of children in the oncology and hematology realm. Equally important to the advancement of pediatric pain medicine is my role as an educator. Along the course of my anesthesiology faculty development, I have taken an active role in the teaching of medical students, residents and fellows through curriculum development, lecture series, workshops and interactive small-group teaching sessions. I am committed to advocating for student education while upholding the highest standards of medical care. I look forward to enhancing the practice of pediatric anesthesiology in continuing to learn from and with medical students, resident-physicians, and colleagues, reviewing the best practices and critically assessing the present standards with evidence-based medicine.

During his career at Johns Hopkins and the University of Colorado, Myron Yaster, MD has changed the practice of anesthesiology, pediatrics, pediatric pain medicine and pediatric critical care medicine locally, nationally, and internationally. He has mentored more than 150 faculty and fellows who have gone on to establish independent, distinguished careers in academic medicine. Dr. Yaster is board-certified in Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, Pediatric Anesthesia, and Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. After completing residencies in Pediatrics (Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh) and Anesthesiology (University of Pennsylvania) and fellowships in Pediatric Anesthesia and Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania) he joined the Hopkins faculty in 1982. He retired from Hopkins in 2016 and joined the faculty at the University of Colorado. He retired from the University of Colorado in 2021. In retirement he edits the daily Ron Litman’s Pediatric Anesthesia Article of the Day which reaches a daily audience of over 4,500 readers in 99 countries. In an ongoing series of clinical and laboratory experiments that started shortly after his arrival at Hopkins, Dr. Yaster has been at the forefront of studies that demonstrated that the newborn infant responds to pain. More importantly, he and his colleagues have proven that this pain can be prevented by the appropriate use of anesthetics (general and regional) and analgesic drugs. Clearly pain, anxiety, and discomfort (both physical and psychological) are not limited to the newborn and do not begin and end with the induction and conclusion of surgery and anesthesia. Dr. Yaster started the Pediatric Pain Service at Johns Hopkins and was until 2005 its clinical director. This program treats approximately 3,000 in- and out-patients a year and is considered by many to be among the best programs in the world. It sets the standard for practice nationally and internationally and has served as the source of extensive clinical and translational research as well as practice policy. He and his colleagues have published extensively in this area. He has authored more than 300 original papers and book chapters as both the first author and as the senior author. In the later capacity he has been the mentor of many individuals who have gone on to become leaders in the areas of Pediatric Anesthesiology, Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, and Pediatric Pain Management. Finally, Dr. Yaster founded and was the first President of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia. This is the largest subspecialty organization of its kind in this field. It currently has over 4,000 members. In recognition of his many contributions to the Society, the Society founded the Myron Yaster, MD Lifetime Achievement Award which is awarded annually to leaders in the field of Pediatric Anesthesiology.
